Overdoing

Okay...so I have not posted much this week, AGAIN! My goal is starting fall by the wayside of everything else I have going on these days. I have not posted to my other blog now for almost two weeks...YIKES! So I got on just to post and I read my daily blog roll and my favorite Clutter Diet blog had a post about Overdoers Anonymous. Not a real group...but if it were it would TOTALLY be for me! If you are interested you can read it here.

I had a very full weekend planned, but things have gone awry as they often do in my overdoing world. Emily got sick last night so that cancelled at least one of the birthday parties today, we are going to attempt to attend the second one. We were also going to have some friends over tonight and I have called them to make sure they want to come. She is not contagious...but sounds HORRIBLE. This is due to her asthma. Anytime she gets a cold and it goes on it settles in her chest and she has a hard time breathing. I always think I am on top of things...but...when we went to the doctor this morning she gave her steroids, breathing treatments, and antibiotics (just in case). Emily has a history of pneumonia so the doctor was trying to be preventative with the antibiotics. I usually don't think this is necessary at all, and I can count on my hand the number of times she has ACTUALLY needed antibiotics, BUT...I certainly don't want another round of pneumonia.

In addition to the two birthday parties today, the friend tonight, tomorrow we are having pictures taken by my wonderful friend Allison, and going to a superbowl party tomorrow night. I had all these grand plans of what I was going to make for the friends tonight, and how I was going to finish up the things I am making for Ben's party next week, but now that has all gone out the window. Oh well...I suppose I was trying to do too many things anyway...right?
